Lots of 0470 questions.

Postby TDezso » Tue Apr 11, 2017 8:08 am

Putting together an 0470-15. This is really my first aircraft motor, besides replacing jugs on a 220. So I've got questions. First is, what do I need on this case besides the mags obviously? And what do I need to block off? I seem to be missing the tach cable mount it looks like also. I haven't really looked at enough of these motors to be able to just bolt everything on. Image

You will need a fuel pump, starter, and a tach generator mounts between your Mags. Everything else I have blocked off on my -15

Don't know if you were aware of this or not . . .
but there is a manual right here for that engine:

If you right click on that link and then select "Save target as ...." you can download it and have a copy.

I've looked through them. I've got them saved and am waiting on parts to get it done and on the boat.
